“The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.”
Mt. Olive was planted by Rev. Jameson L. Teamor in June, 1992. When he retired from ministry, he joined Dr. Teamor's (his daughter) church plant, Mt. Calvary House of Prayer (planted in 2007.) In 2015, When Rev. Teamor went home to glory, the church adopted the name, Mt. Olive. In 2008, we formed Calvary House to aid our Veterans and their families. We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of our volunteers, our board, and our amazing church community. We now worship weekly with members in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, India, East Africa, and Japan. Reverend Teamor would be ecstatic to know about the international reach of the ministry he started!. To God be the Glory!

Ministering on fifth Saturdays, leading Thursday afternoon High Hopes Wellness Ministry, and providing individualized counseling and support to stroke survivors
Pastor Damont Goolsby, who suffered a massive stroke at the age of 23 only months after graduating from Morehouse College accepted his call to ministry in December, 2020. After being "written off" by doctors and told that he had "the mind of a two year old," his mother, the late Barbara Ann Goolsby, unwilling to accept that prognosis, began extensive rehabilitation exercises with him, and to say that he has beaten the odds is an understatement. He committed his life to Christ and served on the Usher Board of Hope United Methodist Church in Southfield, MI with his father, the late Ralph Goolsby. In 2015, he was ordained as a Deacon at Mt. Olive MCC. He has also dedicated his life to helping others experience total health and healing as they overcome their own physical and/or mental challenges. Though his loving parents are no longer with him, their spirits will live on as Pastor Damont continues to forge a path of health and healing, all while leading others on their own journey to spiritual, physical, and emotional wholeness!
